One word to describe this book: interesting

This book has been sitting in my TBR pile for over a year and I finally checked out the audio and I'm glad I did. I'm not sure if I would have liked it as much if I had just read it. I liked the alternative pov's with both a male and female (Lauren Ambrose from Can't Hardly Wait!) narrating the story. The guy's voice kind of bugged me at times though.

I agree with a lot of people that this book drew me in right away from the first chapter but then it was kind of up and down with the way the plot went. I think there was just so much that needed to be added to this story that sometime there were some not so exciting parts. Some of the book was kind of predictable but there were a couple parts that I gasped and was shocked with what happened.

I really liked Amy, wasn't a fan on Elder (evil, evil little man).

One thing that I didn't like about the book was the mating "season". That was kind of distrubing and I was surprised how detailed (to say the least) it was.

The ending was good with finding out who unplugged Amy but I'm not sure if I'll read on in the series. I wonder if Amy will ever get to see her parents unfrozen again.
